Three Little Maids


One of my favorite musicals....(okay, Anthony, operettas,) is the Mikado, by Gilbert and Sullivan. I've always loved it. You may remember one of the numbers, Three Little Maids from School are We....

It's going to become a popular tune on my side of the family over the next few months. I may have mentioned that we're expecting a baby girl in May. I think I've also mentioned that both of my brothers' wives are expecting also - in fact, they're due one day apart from each other in August. And guess what. They're both expecting girls too.

Get ready for some additional estrogen, family! On my side of the family there are three granddaughters, then Stomper and his male cousin (luckily the two of them were born less than a year apart, so at least they have each other!) and then there are two (correction...) THREE more girls. And now there are three more girls on the way. We need some more boys around here! I guess our fetus could surprise everyone and be a boy, seeing as how the ultrasound wasn't exactly definitive, but I'm pretty sure we've got a girl in there. And of course I'm not forgetting our Matthew, but he's keeping an eye on things from Heaven. So it looks like for now there are just girls girls girls everywhere in this family like crazy! It will be fun to have these three little girl cousins all together, though. Ours will be the oldest of the three, so I'm assuming she'll be the boss, right?

As long as our sweet girlie doesn't have Smith's temperament, yours will be boss :) Pretty exciting! How are you feeling these days?! It's coming up quick...I can't wait! Any names yet? We're completely stumped.

Duh, Sheri - I have pregnant brain! Yes, three girls and then three more on the way. Dang, that's a lot of girls!

Wow! That will be fun to have all those girl cousins so close!
We have 5 women in our ward that are pregnant, all due middle/end of summer and all are having girls!
It is the year of the girls, I think.
